YN recently spoke to Just about Ignorant Shit, which is easily one of the most storied "unreleased" tracks in the history of hip-hop (blogging).
We just went to the bathroom, pause, and hung up some blankets from the hotel and we just did it straight like that. A lot of times when an artist is first starting an album they don’t want keep the earlier records ‘cause they still trying to get in their zone. So you know, it kinda just sat for a long time and then the dude that was kinda part of the extended family got tricked into giving it away. Demarco tricked him and he gave him the record and it leaked obviously. I was super mad at the time, just more so of the circumstances and because of what it could have been used for later.
The weekend after I heard the AG album, I had this sudden urge to hear the original version repeatedly and at high volume. So, I threw the closest thing we have to a No DJ of the original on a Cd and played it until I couldn’t stand it anymore.
As I was driving around, I came to the conclusion that, Jay = GOAT.
They’re all actors, lookin’ at themselves in the mirror backwards
Can’t even face themself, don’t fear no rappers
They’re all, weirdos, DeNiros in practice
So, don’t believe everything your earlobe captures…
